Merge Tags

Legal Signing uses merge tags to allow you to dynamically insert links to generated documents in your notifications, confirmations and more.

A merge tag uses curly braces and looks like this: {legal_signing}.

You can learn more about merge tags in general in this Gravity Forms documentation article.

The {legal_signing} Merge Tag

Everywhere the {legal_signing} merge tag is used, it is included in the merge tags drop down for easy inserting into your notification or confirmation. A separate option is available for each Legal Signing feed on your form.

The {legal_signing} merge tag has three parameters: {legal_signing:[feed_id]:[modifier]}.
